Real-world evidence

Three European retrospective real-world chart review studies to determine the effectiveness of flash glucose monitoring on HbA1c in adults with type 2 diabetes

This slide set details a chart-review study involving three European countries, showing significantly reduced glycated hemoglobin in adults with insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes after 3 to 6 months of flash glucose monitoring.

Randomized control trial evidence

An alternative sensor-based method for glucose monitoring in children and young people with diabetes

These slides detail a study of flash glucose monitoring in children and adolescents, showing good accuracy relative to capillary blood glucose testing during up to 14 days of use, along with high acceptability of the device.

Outcomes of using flash glucose monitoring technology by children and young people with type 1 diabetes in a single arm study

The study outlined in this slide set showed improved time in optimal blood glucose range and greater treatment satisfaction among children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes using flash glucose monitoring compared with self-monitoring.

Accuracy, user acceptability, and safety evaluation for the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system when used by pregnant women with diabetes

This slide set describes a study of flash glucose monitoring in pregnant women with diabetes, which demonstrates clinical accuracy versus self-monitoring of blood glucose and a high level of acceptability by the patients.

Use of flash glucose-sensing technology for 12 months as a replacement for blood glucose monitoring in insulin-treated type 2 diabetes

This slide set outlines the extension phase of the REPLACE trial, which shows that the significant reductions in hypoglycemia obtained in patients with insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes after 6 months of flash glucose monitoring use were sustained over an additional 6 months.

Novel glucose-sensing technology and hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetes: a multicentre, non-masked, randomised controlled trial

This slide set presents trial findings showing that patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes who undergo flash glucose testing achieve a greater reduction in the time spent in hypoglycemia over 6 months than those who carry out standard self-monitoring.

Flash glucose-sensing technology as a replacement for blood glucose monitoring for the management of insulin-treated type 2 diabetes: a multicenter, open-label randomized controlled trial

This slide set outlines the results of an open-label trial suggesting that the use of flash glucose-sensing technology results in similar changes in glycated hemoglobin over 6 months compared with standard self-monitoring among insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes.

Impact of flash glucose monitoring on hypoglycaemia in adults with type 1 diabetes managed with multiple daily injection therapy: a pre-specified subgroup analysis of the IMPACT randomised controlled trial

This slide set describes the results of a subgroup analysis of the IMPACT study, which demonstrates that the use of flash glucose technology is associated with a significant reduction in the time spent in hypoglycemia among patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes treated with multiple daily injections.
